Happy Friday everyone!
In exactly 1 week from today Jefferson and I will be in our cottage, starting a fresh, new, exciting chapter in our lives…Which means bank appointments, lawyer appointments, insurance appointments, hardware store galavanting and late nights(and sleepless nights for that matter) talking about all things cottage will be done! Oh who am I kidding…The hardware store galavanting will be in full swing if I know my husband I’m trying to get him to stop, RELAX and enjoy our new summer haven but all he wants to do is jump right in and renovate something! Boys boys boys.
At any rate, our life should theoretically be less chaotic, giving me more time to get back to my often-times nonsense-filled and some-times motivational posts AND I can get back to reading about what all of you are doing! I’m not intentionally ignoring you I promise
In other news, Jeff recently made the decision(on his own I might add) to get focused on losing a few pounds that are weighing him down a bit. I emphasize “on his own” because a few years ago I nagged him to start eating a bit better and get active, and he did, but the weight loss didn’t stick unfortunately.
Recently I’ve noticed him gradually make some really positive changes and I could not be more proud of him.
Some of those changes include cutting out soda (which absolutely SHOCKS me) and crystal light, drinking truck loads of water, watching his food portions, not snacking every night while watching television and going to the gym consistently!
…Who is this guy and what has he done with my husband?
His hard work is paying off because he has lost almost 11 pounds!
He thinks he would like to lose about 50 pounds and I do declare he’s made great progress so far!
It’s not so much the number that makes me so happy (don’t get me wrong it really does) but it’s the healthy habits that he is taking on….And I didn’t even have to be an annoying nag of a wife to get him to do so!
Now if I could just get him to TRY quinoa instead of eating white rice with our sweet and sour turkey meatballs tonight we’d be off to the races! Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaby steps Katie….Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaby steps
Well now I’m off to enjoy the rest of this Friday the 13th!
We have plans tonight to, as mentioned, enjoy some sweet and sour meatballs AND some obligatory Friday the 13th movies!
I will see you this weekend for some nonsense…and maybe some motivation
